No video from me yet either...the poor minicp is grounded waiting for parts!

I had a servo go out on me. Funny thing is, it is NOT stripped. It was not even crashed...the servo was working fine when I landed the flight before, but when I tried to fly it the next time the servo was dead. Not entirely dead, but intermittent and jerky. I opened it up, and it looks like the gears aren't meshing tight enough, even though no teeth are missing.

Had I paid for the heli, I'd be getting with customer service about defective parts...but given that i've already flown it, crashed it, and it was free, that just doesn't seem appropriate.

Pretty disappointing, especially when I learned new walkera servos are about $10 each, plus slow-boat shipping from china. If you want servos fast, they're upwards of $17 here in the states.

I ordered several 282a servos from HK, which are rumored to fit with mild dremel work. $3.81 each. That's more like it. Hopefully I'll be back up and going in a couple weeks.

Hurry up and get to 1000 posts already! you guys are slacking!

My kids are coming home from school early today because some crazy weather person thinks it might snow. Ha! They are annoyed when they have to leave early, as am I because they will interfere with my flying time instead of being in school where they belong! LOL!

Wasn't that better than just posting to bump the count? :-)

I hate the cold.

It's why I need a free helicopter to make me warm, and fuzzy.

Correct me if I am wrong.
So, I purchased one of these on eBay from a seller in Hong Kong. I paid for it and a few hours later I got a message from eBay that the item violates eBay policy and has been removed (they were selling multiple). I'm hoping that mine still ships, but if not I'll just go to the site directly and make the purchase. Interesting that eBay removed it.
